Clement Warns That Cabinet Could Overturn Globalive Decision

The rest of the Canadian wireless industry must be concerned because of some recent comments made by Industry Minister Tony Clement about the Globalive mess that was created by the CRTC. According to the Canadian Press, he said this:

“We do have the power through an order of council in cabinet to amend or vary the decision of the CRTC,” Clement said Thursday after a speech to the Canadian Club of Toronto.

That has to be the biggest hint yet that Globalive could still launch. Considering that the current government in Ottawa sees the CRTC in a negative light, it could happen. That should scare the hell of Rogers, Bell, and Telus.

Hopefully Clement gets the message that Canadians need a real alternative to the “big three” wireless companies and do the right thing.
